Was Keeping Ryan a Good Move for New Orleans?

The 2014 season left Saints fans in complete confusion when it comes to the defense side of the field. Without any doubt, the biggest letdown of the year was the playing and coaching under Rob Ryan. Losing consecutive games by less than three points, while having the lead, is nothing but pure disappointment. After many teams losing head coaches, players, and other personnel, the...

A complete list of FA’s leaving teams can be found here. I have listed the positions below in standard order, not showing the positions on which I think no change is needed. For instance...

Can Rex Ryan be the savior of Buffalo?

Only in Buffalo could a coach coming off a 3-13 season be turned to as the man with the answers. But when you’ve missed the playoffs 15 straight years in an era where the rules are very heavily rigged to prevent such incompetence, at some point you’ve got to do something splashy. And pass or fail, the Buffalo Bills jumped into the pool with a cannonball (I swear, that’s not...

Sources confirm Rob Ryan will remain the New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator

It’s a sad day in the Who Dat Nation. If you still believe the younger Ryan is a legitimate defensive coordinator in this league, then you really haven’t been watching the games. Throughout his 11 years in the league, defenses coordinated by Ryan have only been inside the top 10 in total defense twice; conversely, they’ve been in the bottom 10 five times (not to mention two...

Saints season is done, let’s see why

The regular season is officially over and Rob Ryan has at least survived the NFL’s version of ‘black Friday’. Other than that we as fans are left with one of only two options; begin planning for the draft and looking to next year, or look back at the year that was and try to sift through the rubble of our shattered dreams and expectations. Lucky for all of you I am going to...

Saints sign former SB Champ and 1st round pick Kenny Phillips

This one is a surprise. I know Rob Ryan loves his safeties but honestly I completely forgot about this guy. Looks like he’s giving it another go. It’s a crowded position for the Saints but after 2014 you never know. Ex-No. 1 pick, SB champ Kenny Phillips to try to overcome knee problems, 2-year NFL hiatus to make #saints in 2015 | — Ramon Antonio Vargas...

Rob Ryan plans to cut his hair, but not now with the peer pressure

Throughout his NFL coaching career, New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan often has been regarded as a maverick of sorts, a loner (Dottie), a rebel. Much of that has to do with the unconventional way he keeps his hair: Long, flowing locks of grayness. It’s a look, for sure, but definitely not the norm. […]The post Rob Ryan fully intends to cut his majestic locks one...
